What Is Megas XLR In Armored Core 6?

Mega XLR is a custom build in Armored Core 6 that is based on the popular show by the name of “Mega XLR” that aired on Cartoon Network in 2004.

Coop and Jamie were two slacking teenagers who stumbled upon a Mechanized Earth Guard Attack System (Megas) in a New Jersey junkyard one day. Although the control system for Megas was faulty, Coop replaced it with a classic muscle car to pilot it using his video game skills. 

The similarity between the show and Armored Core 6 is quite obvious. Using a video game controller to pilot a giant mecha is something the two have in common. This similarity was meant to inspire some Megas XLR-themed builds in the newly released AC 6.

Consequently, many players have shared their AC makes on multiple social media platforms resembling the original show.

Replicating Megas XLR in Armored Core 6 is not a straightforward task. Since AC 6 has no dedicated components for the show, you can only choose parts resembling Megas XLR’s appearance. However, the trick here is to use the paint and decal features in AC 6 and cosmetically design the armored core to look like the one in the show.

  • The paint feature in the customization menu can be useful in applying the blue and yellow colors of the Megas XLR to your build.
  • On the other hand, the Decal function comes in handy when applying custom emblems and designs on your AC, which are particularly helpful in making the flame design of the original robot.  

On the brighter side, it allows you to choose whatever lookalike parts you want. So rest assured that you can still be free to make the best PVP build you prefer.

Megas XLR Builds By Other Users

Now that you understand the mechanism behind building Megas XLR Armored Core 6 let’s look at what other players have achieved.

Reddit User: Rjsbrowse

The Reddit user u/rjsbrowse shared a side-by-side comparison of his AC build with the Megas XLR in r/armoredcore. The post was made on the 25th of August, 2023, and received positive feedback from the community. The user was kind enough to share their Armored Core and Flames image editor codes with other players.

Here are the codes for PC:

  1. Whole AC: SUY7PK2YY9EX
  2. Chest Flames: 68SHZRUE71L8
  3. Eightball Flames: GT98QTKXT959
  4. Eyeball Flames: 3C3DUJXW8MTF

Although cross-platform codes are unavailable, you can replicate their build if you play on a PC.

An X user @Yautrek, also shared their Megas XLR Armored Core 6 build by posting a Ticktok video on the platform. The defining feature that makes it one of the best builds in the Megas XLR theme category is the head module. The DF-HD 08 accurately resembles the red muscle car from the show. Although I do not have the shareable codes for their design, I found a list of parts in their build.

You can freely replicate and modify the above build if you can design your version of Yellow Flames. However, if you are on PC, you can combine the above AC parts with rjsbrowse’s designs to complete your Megas XLR AC. 

Here is a list of the parts used:

Component Name
Head DF-HD-08 Tina-Qiang
Core  BD-011 Melander
Arms  DF-AR-08 Tina-Qiang
Legs LG-011 Melander
Right Arm Unit SG-027 Zimmerman
Left Arm Unit HML-G2/P19MLT-04
Right Back Unit SongBirds
Left Back Unit HI-32: BU-TT/A
Booster  IA-CO1B: Gills
FCS FCS-G2/PO5
Generator DF-GN-06 Ming-Tang
Expansion Assault- Armor

Detailed game customization options always encourage players to get creative with their builds. As a result, it is normal for many unique and jaw-dropping builds to float around the internet. The concept of building Megas XLR-themed mechas in AC 6 is one such idea. Using the share codes and list of parts mentioned in the guide, you can also build a Megas XLR-themed AC if you are a show fan.

Apart from a themed build, there is much more to explore in AC6. For instance, you can read about the Armored Core 6 Arena mode and all stats in AC6. If you are progressing through the main story, read the handy boss fight guides on Juggernaut, Ayre, and the Ice Worm.
